Sounds of Spring

"Quack, quack, quack..."

Mallards along the shoreline in front of the house

That sound at 5:30 am really should annoy me, but the past few days, it's been music to my ears!  It means the ice is melting on the lake, that spring will truly arrive one of these days!  The sounds of spring are almost as delightful as the smells and sights.  There's a morning songbird that always reminds me of spring, but not being a birder, I have no idea what it is or how to even describe it's two-toned, high-low, sing-song.  But I know that whenever I hear it, it brings a smile to my face,and I just want to whistle right back!

  1. I so agree! When the Canada Geese come back, my heart soars. Now we have our robins as well.

    My favourite sound of all has yet to begin....the frogs coming out of hibernation. Hibernation? Well, they come back anyway. We have some marshland near us and we keep our bedroom window open at night so we can hear them.
